The Great Pick Up Line
Welcome Carol Thomas as they share their Great Pick Up Line from Crazy Over You.
Take it away Carol!
“Hi, I’ve been sent this way as male lookout to protect you ladies. I am stationed to the right of the stairs should you need me.” He gestured through the double doors to the stairwell and the boys’ corridor beyond as he spoke.
“Thanks Brad,” Abby smiled, “but I think us ladies,” she motioned down the girls’ corridor, “will be just fine.”
“Well, I’m just saying, because you never know…” he mused, reaching up to the corners of the doorframe. The shift in stance accentuated his strong physique and his t-shirt lifted just enough as he stretched to reveal a hint of his firm stomach.
Abby blushed as she realised she was overly staring at the fine hairline of his happy trail. Oh lord! She felt a strange tingle as she blinked, attempting to shake off the image. Gathering her senses, she put her hands on her hips. “Now I am sure you have unpacking, or organising or something to do,” she stated in her best I-am-not-fazed-by-you voice.
Bradley grinned an infectious, cheeky grin and lowered his voice. “You know, if you keep refusing my offers, Mrs Turner, I’m going to start taking offence!” he teased.[/quote]
Crazy Over You by Carol Thomas
CRAZY OVER YOU: Love can drive you crazy… in more ways than one!
When Abby met Simon, it was the start of something special, a love Abby believed would last a lifetime…
A wedding, two daughters and fifteen years later, Abby’s world is falling apart. Having discovered Simon has had an affair her normally ordered mind is spiralling out of control. Crushed by the betrayal and shocked by her own reaction, she knows she needs to get herself together. She’s just not sure where to start.
With Simon on a mission to win her back and a close friend hiding a secret that could push her further over the edge, Abby finds strength and support where she least expects it. But as she attempts to gain control of her life and make decisions about her future, it may be more than the limits of Abby’s mind that are put to the test!
